Flat track projects

Last seson my mate Brad had his RMX flat-tracker stolen.
So after cursing the ground that thieving scumbags walk on, he decided it was time to build a flat-tracker for this coming season. 
We know that "framers " ( bikes built rather than converted motorcrossers) look way better and there is a massive sence of achive ment when something you've built actually works and is competitive. 

Brad found this Knight frame in the states and with the help of Anthony at Co-Built got it shipped back. It has adjustable yolks and Yam R6 forks. 
All trackers except Vintage class and mini bikes have to use 19" wheels front and back and Maxxis DT1 tyres here in the uk , in the DTRA race series anyway. 
The motor is a 600cc Rotax this means that Brad can race in ThunderBike class ( anything 600cc or over) and he could also race in the restricted class ( not a rooky and not a pro , intermediate I guess) which is the class I currently run in.

As you may or may not know I am building a triumph framer for next seson so I'll be racing in the vintage and I think I'll use my YZF in the restricted class aswell. 
This is probebly one of the cheapest forms of Motorsport and has a great bunch of folk that are friendly and helpfull we even let French beat us every now and then ( makes em feel better) . 
Make an effort and get involved you'll love it. 



For info on race dates and general cool stuff that's going on.
